Automotive Hybrid Technology careers are based on a skill set that’s complimentary to becoming an Automotive Mechanic or one that can stand on its own as a specialist. Focused on Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and their engines, these vehicles combine battery power and an internal combustion engine for a more environmentally friendly option with reduced emissions.
HEVs may also include moped and electric bicycles, but also heavy vehicles, such as some ships and trains. Additionally a hybrid engine might be gasoline or diesel. A common hybrid car is the Toyota Prius.
